Tim is a graduate student in biophysics, studying the interactions between the C. elegans immune and nervous systems.
Tim’s general research interest is in how biological systems process information and make decisions. He is a graduate student in the Harvard Biophysics Program. Tim did his undergraduate studies at Rice University, where he studied physics and worked on a variety of projects in cancer and synthetic biology. He previously worked on applying compressed sensing to identify neurons that control locomotion in C. elegans. His current research focuses on the interactions between the C. elegans immune and nervous systems.
